Geoff Tate is starring in a new independent horror flick.
The former Queensryche and current Operation Mindcrime front man is starring in the direct-to-DVD movie The Burningmore Deaths. The movie, set to be released on DVD and digital platforms on Feb. 14 via Cleopatra Studios and MVD Entertainment Group, is based on true events centered on a group of unsolved murders.
The murders are alleged to have happened in 2005 during the filming of a pilot for a home improvement television series. A man named James Parrish is believed to have murdered the crew filming the home makeover presentation in the house where he is also alleged to have previously murdered his own wife and children.
As the film crew proceeds to record the series’ pilot, Parrish allegedly murdered the film crew, with the whole event being caught on security cameras set up by the show’s crew. Tate takes on the role of Parrish in this gripping horror/thriller from MVD Entertainment Group. Audiences can view a trailer for the movie online now here.
Tate said taking on the role of Parrish was not a big change of pace for him because of his experience. It just meant thinking a little bit differently.
“I think I’ve always done it…In our own shows and with the way I present music,” Tate said. “It all has a bit of a stage acting bend to it. So this wasn’t really a stretch for me. It was just playing to a different audience, to a camera rather than a room full of people, but it’s the same thing. You play-act and you make stuff up and you present that like you would in a stage show.”
The Burningmore Deaths can be ordered online direct via MVD Entertainment Group’s online store and via Amazon. More information on this and other titles from MVD Entertainment Group is available online now at:
